The person you were arguing with was so stupid that you just had to end it and you were fairly sure he/she wasn't a troll. I mean the person had a ridiculous premise and everything you said the person came back with something even more illogical.
I had this experience recently and I wasn't the only one that was getting into it with that person because of their idiotic question. I couldn't even just sit back and enjoy sparring with this person because the insults this person was giving out were so lame. I just had to walk away because I honestly felt I was getting dumber interacting with this person.
I'm not asking you to name the person but, have you ever had this experience on GAG?
Sometimes, not often. I listen to everyone, although I don't accept the views of everyone as a possible alternative. Although I'm also not interested in a debate if it's about insults and name-calling rather than a discussion. People who dogmatically believe things tend to be the ones who retaliate with verbal harassment - because they cannot `support` their viewpoint in any other way.
This happens a good bit on GAG, though GAG is less prone to trolling than many other sites.
One recurring troll here I've talked to is the virgin-obsessed guy. He throws out the line and I bite, every time. I'm sure all the while he's laughing behind his computer monitor at how gullible I am.
Kind of did one time. I was talking with @RichardTX and I said he was a white person but he kept saying he wasn't white he was Italian. and I said it's the same thing but he kept saying I was just stupid and uneducated. I couldn't believe it.
Yes. Its RedArrow. This guy thinks that its okay to act like a doctor and start giving advices to people over the internet... when he is not even holding a medical degree. Guess what ! Others agreed with him...
